Don Malik expelled from Daze Alive Music

South Korean label Daze Alive Music said it has expelled rapper Don Malik, after he admitted to sexually harassing a high school student. In an apology issued through social media channels last Thursday, the 22-year-old rapper said: "I harassed the victim, taking advantage of the power relationship between a fan and an artist."

The news comes as a shock to the public, as Don Malik has called himself a "feminist rapper".

Daze Alive Music has actively participated in promoting gender equality, openly discussing the issues through music and supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender festivals.
